Description

Your personal English-speaking guide will be waiting for You at the harbor for a sightseeing tour highlighting the most amazing ancient features of Split and of the archaeological site of the Roman city of Salona.

Two locations, glorious at the time when the Romans ran the show, still testify to the greatness of that ancient civilization. Where else can you find a retirement home of a Roman Emperor? After the fall of the Roman Empire life went on in Split and different nations conquered this area but the Roman architecture survived along with all the architectural additions of the centuries that followed.

Diocletian’s Palace is one of the most important historical remains in Croatia. The ruins of Diocletian's Palace, built between the late 3rd and the early 4th century A.D., can be found throughout the city. The cathedral was built in the Middle Ages by reusing the materials from the ancient mausoleum. 12th and 13th-century Romanesque churches, medieval fortifications, 15th-century Gothic palaces and other palaces in Renaissance and Baroque style make up this protected area.

Salona is however a different story. This ancient city and capital of the Roman province on the Dalmatian coast is located in modern-day Croatia, about 5 km from Split. The archaeological site of what once was the greatest city of this Roman province remains full of the Roman spirit. Take a walk among the ruins of the basilicas where Christianity blossomed. There are sarcophagi and gravestones to be found every step of the way, an amazing amphitheater and so much more.
